Book Blurb: When Pearl Richland inherits her aunt's 1950s motel she returns to her roots. Tired of the big city, she's ready for small town life, especially when sexy cowboy Wil Marshall comes in to escape an ice storm. Pearl never thought she'd turn in her high heels and start dating a cowboy, but Wil's got an awful lot to offer if a girl's available for a whole lot of fun, sizzle, and unexpected trouble.
My Thoughts: I have always been a fan of Carolyn Brown's work. They are light reads that let you take a plunge into a world of hot cowboys and strong women. In this one we got to meet Pearl and Wil who are instantly attracted to one another. One thing in this book I really enjoyed was the talk between these two. It isn't something you usually experience a whole lot of in books. This couple would talk on the phone and really brought me back to my years of dating my husband and the way you explored one another through conversation.
Pearl was quite the feisty character. She was a lot of fun to read and had such a big heart. She took to caring for everyone from the beginning, including trouble boy Wil.
The romance in this book is pretty clean. The door is probably ajar-ed so we get to know a little but about them as the heat up the sheets.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes a hot cowboy or a book to just sit back and enjoy.
